Snow Day!

Here in New Hampshire, we're getting quite a snow storm today! Some parts of the state are predicted to get over 2 feet of snow. While we're slated to get a little bit less than that, it's still a considerable amount. I'd estimate that we have a foot already. With schools cancelled and an official State of Emergency called, we're staying home and hunkering down!

We woke up this morning to our power going out at about 6am. I was pretty bummed I hadn't gotten up earlier and make coffee! Fortunately, it was out for only a couple of hours, and Rich was able to light the woodstove by light of the flashlight, so at least we would be warm while we waited it out. I'm happy to have the lights back on, coffee going, and a warm breakfast! The wind is blowing and we have several hours of snowfall ahead of us, so we're happy to hang out inside and stay warm and dry!

Lucy and I headed out early this morning to take a potty walk, but she was pretty motivate to get back inside as soon as possible, not even staying out with me to shovel the quick path to the gate... Which is now completely snowed over again.

In closing, Lucy would like to share her tips for a successful snow day.

Step 1. Snuggle up on the couch.

Step 2. Patrol the yard for any action, assess snowfall, look for the town plow truck clearing the road.
Step 3. Go outside to investigate and run in the snow, quickly decide it's too cold. Come back inside. Return to Step 1.

If it's snowy and cold where you are, I hope you can stay inside and warm, too! Until it's time to shovel, that is!
